Ceritas Pinot Noir Hacienda Secoya Vineyard 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Pine, menthol and resin notes jump from the glass in the 2012 Pinot Noir Hacienda Sequioa. Iron, dark red fruit and a host of mineral notes add complexity. There is a directness and focus to the 2012 that is striking. The combination of expressive aromatics and intense fruit, both backed up by considerable structure, is hugely appealing. Sweet floral notes reappear on the finish, adding further nuance. The Hacienda Sequioa, emerges from a site in Anderson Valley planted in 1995, and was done with fully destemmed fruit...93" Antonio Galloni 2/14

Lots of light comes through the garnet color. Fairly “perfumey” nose—cherry blossoms, violets. Quite light-bodied—I guess this was forecasted by the light coming through in the glass. Abrupt hit of cherry flavor on introduction, but the lightness of the wine keeps it away from the cough syrup taste that I get in a lot of PNs. No tannin at all. Gentle and pleasant acid makes this an easy to drink wine.

Interesting wine. I see from previous notes that I had raved about this wine. This bottle, though, does not match that opinion. A very pretty bright floral nose. On the tip of the tongue, though, when I normally get fruit from just about any wine, I get no fruit, here. I get stoniness, I get savory and I get, maybe, salinity. I do get some red fruit on the edges of the tongue. As others indicate it is quite light-bodied, and I saw that in my previous notes. There is nothing bad about this. I am just surprised that it just seems flavorless. The research continues.
